FOX television executives were in attendance at Tuesday night’s WWE television tapings at the STAPLES Center in Los Angeles, California.
Sports Illustrated writer Richard Deitsch reported via social media that FOX Sports President Eric Shanks and FOX Talent Producer Jacob Ullman were in the front row for last night’s episode of SmackDown Live, seated next to on-air personality Colin Cowherd.
It’s noteworthy that FOX executives were at the show, as FOX is heavily rumored to be in the running for WWE’s television rights. They’ve also been named as potential interested buyers of the company.
